• About Franklinton Middle

    The historic Franklinton Middle School was most recently known as Franklinton High School until its departure in 2011. The school which was built in 1923 housed all grade levels. The first floor was an elementary school, the second level was the middle school and the third floor was the high school. FMS was a gift to the town of Franklinton from Samuel C. Vann who was also the owner of the Sterling Cotton Mill in Franklinton.

    We are continuing a great legacy in the old Franklinton High School facility while making our own footsteps under the leadership of principal, David Averette and assistant principal, Heidi Boardman. It is important to us to provide not only a phenomenal learning environment but a safe one as well.

    Franklinton Middle School serves 297 students in grades 6-8. The student:teacher ratio of 13:1 is lower than the NC average of 16:1. Minority enrollment is 54% (43% black & 11% Hispanic) of the student body which is more than the state average of 50%. 

    Franklinton Middle School operates within the Franklin County School District.
